Scandinavia is made up of Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden with four different yet connected personalities. Cities throughout Scandinavia blend history and tradition with the modern age. Each country has its own distinct attractions that make Scandinavia a unique travel experience for visitors.
Home to the oldest royal family in the world, Denmark has an incredibly rich history. From its Viking past to its mid-century modern designers, a visit to Denmark presents a myriad of sightseeing options for all varieties of travellers to Scandinavia. Copenhagen, the capital city of Denmark, cannot be missed. Equally worth a visit is Hamlet’s castle in Helsingborg and the northernmost tip of the country in Skagen. This is where the two parts of the North Sea meet, providing a particularly diverse view of Scandinavia and the Danish landscape.
Drawing strong influences from both its easterly neighbour, Russia, and from its western one, Sweden, Finland remains one of Europe’s most enigmatic countries. The Finnish landscape is flat and punctuated by huge forests and lakes, with the drama heightening as you head north. The capital, Helsinki, straddles several islands brightened by brilliant architecture and superb collections of late modern and contemporary artworks. The gradually rising fells and forests of Lapland are Finland’s most alluring terrain and are home to semi-nomadic reindeer herders.
With stunning vistas of snow-covered mountains and beautiful fjords, Norway is a scenic paradise. Outdoor enthusiasts will find no shortage of landscape to explore and activities to keep them busy. But, natural beauty is not all that Norway has to offer. From the capital city of Oslo to the remote Arctic wilderness of Svalbard, Norway’s vibrant cities and wondrous landscapes make Scandinavia’s “land of the midnight sun” one of the world’s most unique and beautiful destinations.
History and culture are only a part of Sweden’s amazing appeal. Cities here, from Stockholm to Malmo, blend traditional culture with modern sensibilities. However, similar to the rest of Scandinavia this lightly populated country is also home to islands, forests, towering mountains, crystal clear-waters and star-lit views. The landscape is rugged, yet serene. The people, known to be some of Scandinavia’s most earnest, are genuine and friendly.
